• The Eucharist and the Real Presence of Christ

    Catholic Church teaches the sacrament of the Eucharist is the Real Presence of Jesus Christ. The Blessed Sacrament is when the bread and wine truly become the body, blood soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. The process by which this happens is called transubstantiation. The Eucharist is not a symbol of Jesus. It is Jesus. This is a central teaching of the Catholic Church, and many no longer believe! A recent Pew Research Center survey reported that approximately 70% of Catholics DO NOT believe what the Church teaches regarding the Blessed Sacrament. In this video, Catholic Speaker Ken Yasinski talks about the Real Presence and goes over 4 ways to prepare our hearts before receiving the Eucharist.

  • The Litany of Trust

    The Litany of Trust is a prayer composed by Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, SV. In it, we ask Jesus to deliver us from the things that hold us bound, and we place our trust in His promises.

  • The Truth About God's Love

    "God is Love" (1 Jn 4:8). Love isn't something God does. It is the essence of who He is. Everytime we love, or experience love, we experience the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth. Knowing that God is love and that we are loved beyond measure is a game changer. It has radical implications for how we see ourselves and others. Love transforms. Divine Love is trying to transform us into the saints we have been called and created to be, and our love for others and ourselves when lived genuinely can transform the world. Check out our parish newszine - The Way, The Truth, and the Life - and this issue's focus, which is on the God, who is Love.

holy week

Holy Week is the culmination of our Lenten sojourn to not only conform our hearts to Christ, but to also be transformed by His love for us. Holy Week leads us into the most profound liturgical celebration within the Church, the Triduum. The liturgies during Holy Week are unlike any other liturgy that takes place during the year. They immerse us into the Pascal Mystery of Christ and aid us in our quest for holiness.
